Child safety program to teach family strategies

Parents and children are invited to learn how to recognize and avoid potential abductions and other dangerous situations at a free police-sponsored event in northwest Eugene today.

The child safety program, called Escape School, teaches children and their families strategies to avoid or escape abduction and other criminal activity. The session will be from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Willamette High School, 1801 Echo Hollow Road.

The program concentrates on developing confidence and assertiveness in children ages 5 to 15, who might otherwise be easy targets for criminals. Lessons such as family code words, emergency communications and how to resist dangerous grown-ups, are easy for parents and children to learn.

Escape School has been featured on "America's Most Wanted," "20/20," "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and other television programs. No tickets or reservations are required. The session is made possible by a grant from Dignity Memorial.
